$4/day Cookbook Seeing Tremendous Success

Leanne Brown, a food studies scholar at New York University, sparked considerable interest when she published her cookbook “Good and Cheap” free online. The cookbook focuses on inexpensive, healthy meals that fit into a $4/day budget. Her goal was to create a resource for those trying to eat healthy on a tight budget. “It bothered me that so many ideas for fixing the food system leave out the poor: it seemed like they didn’t have a voice in the food movement. I wanted to create a resource that would promote the joy of cooking and show just how delicious and inspiring a cheap meal can be if you cook it yourself.”
